Table Top Tuesday

Thanks to Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for hosting Table Top Tuesday so we can share our decorating designs! Click on her name for lots more inspiration.

Inspiration for this table top started with this pretty deer I found at TJ Maxx a few months ago.
I haven't bought many Christmas decorations this year, but I did want this, it was love at first sight! LOL! He is 24 inches tall and very elegant! His fur is different, sort of a soft straw, I don't know what it is called.
He is mostly white, maybe a light blond color in places! It's hard to photograph a true color, especially using the flash which I had to do as I almost forgot TTT and it getting dark when I remembered, (we've been gone all afternoon.)

I've been dragging my feet with putting up Christmas decorations and couldn't decide what to use for my blog banner. I like to change the hall tree decor in the foyer.
I placed him on the left side and looked around for something else to go with the vignette.
How about this small white Italian Nativity with a cloche?

The white poinsettias look nice too!


The reflection in the mirror looks like two deer!
But, no, only one!
I wish I could think of a nice name for him!
Any suggestions?

View from above.


Mirror reflection (above) shows a bit of the living room.



I think he loves to pose and loves the attention!

The Nativity is one of many I have in my collection:
I hope to share some of them in Marty's Cloche Party this Friday!

I took many photos to try to get a good one for the blog banner.
The verticals are best, but it must be horizonal!

I hope you enjoyed seeing this Christmas vignette in our foyer.

God Bless.

Looks like you got two for the price of one-very nice! Pretty new banner, and the cloche is beautiful too-enjoy:@)

Kathleen said...

How pretty! Love the Nativity too.
I have a name for the deer who eat all my flowers, but I don't think you want to name yours that! Snowfall maybe?

Katherine, your deer is quite a knockout. I like that yours has hair like a real deer. Very pretty vignette.

So very beautiful! Thinking of the name Randolph or Errol - quite elegant

I like that you have put the Nativity in the Cloche. I noticed that right away...I like the whites in this display..I'm thinking he might be called 'Spirit'. He looks kind of whimsical, doesn't he?

How's your sister doing?

What a pretty and unusual deer...I have never seen one like it, it looks very soft. It was very cleaver of you to place it in the mirror - two deers for one! Thank you for finding the time to visit me and leave such a nice comment about my Christmas mantle.(-:

I love the look of your arrangement. The deer is wonderful. I wouldn't have left him at TJM either.
